Taking this idea from another group...think its April.

What is your most tmi thing this pregnancy?

Mine is the fact that it feels when I poop I am about to give birth. It hurts so bad that I will sweat and cry.

Huge issues with gas that no one should ever have

We haven't since I was 7 weeks pregnant that's a long time.


alright you all know way TMI about me what about you?

wow 7 weeks? Really? Medical reason? Were still getting it done. However the quantity has definitly slowed down this trimester. I too am having gas issues. I'm like an old lady who can't hold it in. I just walk around Walmart letting it out wherever. I usually have about a 2 second warning before it happens so I try to get away from others. My most TMI is the whole peeing on myself thing. Definitly didn't happen with dd so beware 1st time momma's. Next go round things don't hold up so well. Come to think about it thats an old lady thing too. Anytime I sneeze and/or cough I have about a teaspoon to a tablespoon leak out. Once again sometimes I have a warning & am able to keagle during the sneeze/cough but with this most of the times theres just no stopping it. Just resorted to wearing a panty liner constantly.

We have still been occasionally (maybe once a week or less often), but I haven't : in about 4 or 5 months. I am wondering if it'll ever happen again.

Well, since you asked

1. I have the gas problem too. Horrifically. Sometimes lately my husband has been sleeping on the couch because of it.

2. So much discharge I've had to wear pads for most of my pregnancy or I get a rash between my legs. I hate pads and find this one to be so unfair!:

3. I never get dressed anymore unless I have to go somewhere. I'll even take a shower and put my jammies back on. Nothing fits comfortably. And when I do go somewhere, I always wear the same pair of pants or my overalls. (not really TMI, but still embarrassing)

ahhh....pregnancy.

We've like once in the last couple months DH has been sleeping in the guest room for about a month now, cause I was keeping him up with my hourly trips to the bathroom, and he was keeping me up with his snoring. I can still :, but they are of the DIY variety...

My biggest TMI is that I'm having a hard time contorting myself into a position to wipe properly I shower daily and pay special attention down there, so I'm clean at least, but trying to get completely clean while on the toilet is near impossible.

Also, I'm almost to the point where I can't put on socks by myself anymore.

So glad to have you all to commiserate with!

Thanks for the suggestion. That is what I'm using, and they are certainly better than the disposables!

Ugh, after having two babies already my entire pelvic region is kind of letting me down. As if peeing myself wasn't bad enough now I'm really trying to include a lot of fruits and fiber in my diet because I have developed a very uncomfortable case of hemorrhoids to the point that even wiping is painful.

I am having the poop issue too...I take some fiber to help out sometimes and try to eat fruit. Still hurts though. And I'm discharging like nobody's business. I've had to switch to family cloth so that I could stand wiping as I am so sensitive. And I noticed the my smell has changed...*laughs* and sometimes my nether regions smell like food to me now. Just weird! I went for two weeks thinking I smelled like ramen noodles all the time...DH just said I was crazy.

This made me laugh out loud at work. I'm a bit smellier than before, but not like food.

I also have the discharge issue-what a pain.

The peeing myself when I cough or sneeze is the worst to me though.

So I am not the only one peeing on myself - hallelujah!!! I thought I was such a freak! (And I still can't figure out how it is happening.) For the last couple of weeks I have felt like I "had to go" (pick a number) and when I get in there - nothing - or I might get a trickle after 5 mins.

We have not DTD in MONTHS. Which is rather ironic b/c normally I am insatiable and my DH is, ah, not so much. Since the first trimester (I am in week 33) I haven't wanted to once! Now I am on bedrest so we can't even if I wanted to. DH is VERY understanding about it all. Embarassingly, I attempted to help him out manually and ended up falling asleep twice! He said it was cute how I just started snoring all of a sudden.

Another horrifying thing is that being on bedrest means when I absolutely have to go out I have to use those motoscooters in the stores that have them. They are so embarassing! Especially when the sales people say they are only there for people who really "need" them. Excuse me, but I suppose I can walk if you want me to deliver my baby in the middle of your store. Grr.

Thanks for everyone else's TMI - I don't feel so alone!

Leaky bladder!!! I am tired of peeing myself, I don't leave the house without a pad on!!! I even had to stop hiding it from DH a few days ago...we were watching a funny movie and I laughed, coughed, and sneezed all at the same time and peed all over myself!!! Oh the shame of it all...
As far as DTD, as long as I can get through the day without developing a horrible case of gas and stay awake until bedtime, we have no issues!!!

glad I'm not the only one that can't.... : anymore! It's a total bummer. Especially since in know I won't be able to after the baby for a good... long... time! It took me about 20 months to get my sex drive back after Dd. Sex was SO painful & unsatisfying (i think from BFing).

I help Dh out manually a lot! it keeps him satisfied (although I know he would prefer DTD). I got pretty good at it during my above mentioned 20 months!

OK, I have pee issues after I pee : I try really hard to get it all out (which btw has been hard since week 5! - some pregnancy smooth muscle issue?) and then kegel when I stand up but somehow always drip when walking out of the bathroom anyway. *so* annoying

Add me to the discharge club. Yeeeeeuck. Been really bad the past couple of weeks.

Also add me to the not having sex club. But only because we're not allowed to, not because we don't want to!

I was just saying to DH how ironic it would be if we waited and waited til 36 weeks or so and then I went into labor before we ever got a chance to DTD, and then we'd have to wait another 6 weeks. That would be sooo not fair! Been on pelvic rest since 24 weeks. :

Ok, I'm chiming in to the no sex club, but not because I don't want to! It's been my BIGGEST peeve in both of my pregnancies - dh sees me as "Mother Earth," doesn't see me as a sexual being when I'm big and preggo (although ironically I feel sexier than ever because pregnancy has treated me very well weight-wise both times), and not only that, but now he thinks that the DIY fun times are messing up our love life and wants us both to "save" it for each other. I have no issue with stopping, but unless he picks up the pace on his end, I don't think I can abide by that rule!

Shhhh.... just don't tell him. Somehow during pregnancy, I develop a very healthy appetite for DTD but he tapers off right when I'm picking up steam

And add me to the discharge club - driving me crazy lately . . . I'm never quite sure what is happening when I suddenly spring a "leak"

Well I seem to have an abundance of TMI this time around LOL.
When I go tot the toilet, even pee, the bowl fills with blood from horrendous hemmeroids I have had since about week 23.
DH and I aren't able to DTD b/c I have vaginal vericose veins and it just hurts was too much.
I am way smellier down there then I have ever been before in pregnancy.

This is so hilarious. Look I'm not trying to offend anyone but I definitly think a 8 to 9 month pregnant woman "needs" one more than someone who is obese. I have fanticized about using one but never had.
